Tested | Blackburn Grid 13 Multitool.

Posted by: kris

From unboxing the Blackburn Grid 13 multitool I knew it wouldn’t be leaving my bag. The key here is layout which makes things less clunky and each tool that much easier to use. Toss in a wide selection of wrenches, drivers and the obligatory bottle opener and the Grid is perfect tagging along for the ride. Click through for a closer look and a few words on this little guy…

Tested | 24 Bottles From Italy

Posted by: Chris Yang

Few days ago I spent some time relaxing in the coffee shop and enjoying this beautiful water bottles! Big thanks to 24Bottles and their distributor Bike The Moment in HK for sending their elegant urban bottles and world champion color wine rack! Established in 2013, 24Bottles brings you the finest design that you can ever imagine on the water bottle. The designers saw the waste….people throwing disposables away all around the planet. They decided to change that situation and aimed to come out with the 18/8 stainless bottles that were sustainable, light (100g) and stylish!

 

Unlike most cycling water bottles we see, their bottles are beautiful, clean and easy to carry. It’s a simple water bottle that actually includes many functional details…the matte print makes it hard to leave any fingerprints, the wide lip of the bottle makes you easy to put some ice cubes inside. The main idea behind the company is to lower the waste and keep our planet clean and healthy! That’s also the idea behind 0.08kg on the bottle, which means the dispersal of 0.08kg of CO2 coming out from the production of a disposable 0.5l plastic bottle. Wine rack helps you tighten your bottle or even wine on your frame when commuting in the city. It’s flexible and durable so you don’t even have to worry about falling out. There are so many good things on their website and I just simply love the idea and the great design of this company. So stoked that Lockedcog can help them share some words out and we are certainly looking forward to seeing their upcoming products in the future!

Henry’s 2014 Histogram.

Posted by: kris

When it comes to nice track bikes there’s likely more Mash x Cinelli builds here in Sacramento than anything else. Henry just picked up this ’14 Histogram in what is probably my favorite colorway for these. He tossed on some Thompson goodies and finished it off proper with a Wound Up and 44RN ring. Definitely going big with the super wide flat bars on there but a mean street machine none the less! More after the click…

Tested | Knog Pop Duo Bike Light Set

Posted by: Chris Yang

It’s been a few months since I came back from my lovely second hometown Sacramento last year…met up with some new and old homies, especially the real dude behind Lockedcog, Kris Fay. I got this set of Knog Pop Duo Bike Lights from him but never really had an opportunity to have them shot! Special thanks to my friend again, Y.C Tang, for running our night time experiment!

 

The light itself, apparently, is not their brightest model in the category…but I think it’s actually good enough for urban riders like me. It comes with 5 different light modes and the visibility at distances is over 1000 meters. Like other lights of Knog, it comes with the quick release mounting so that you won’t even need 5 seconds to set them up! Overall, as far as I am concerned, this set of lights is great for the rider who commutes in the city. If you are going to climb some hills at night with low light and low visibility, I recommend you to get a higher level, which is the brighter one! Anyway, I’m still stoked to see the outcomes of these photos from my boy!

#messlife | Go Fast Turn Right.

Posted by: kris

With a little time to spare toward the end of the day Jesse and I posted up for a quick composite on J Street. Being the busiest street in town we had to time this one just right to keep most of the traffic out of the background. Been a while since I’ve done one of these!
